More Focus on Cambria Brand
The Cambria Hotels brand has been the company’s major growth driver. Cambria significantly outperformed the upscale soft brands (and the segment on the whole) in terms of year-over-year RevPAR change. The brand has been well received on account of smart-conversion opportunities.
The company stated operations at more than 68 Cambria hotels with operations in Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, Nashville and Phoenix. During first-quarter 2023, the company’s domestic hotel openings increased 14% year over year.
Backed by solid consumer confidence and the attractiveness of Choice Hotels value proposition, the company anticipates boosting the revenue intensity of its system by adding more properties. The company stated that it has added almost 70 hotels in the pipeline.
